Active Honeymooners looking to book Cruise- Help please
Please help us pick our honeymoon cruise. You all have so much more experience than us.
We are in the early planning stages for our Honeymoon. We are going to take our honeymoon a few months after our wedding, so we are a little bit flexible.
We are looking to take a cruise in February or March of 08. We are Carnival Vacation Club members. We sort of did it in the heat of our last cruise which was AWESOME! We can use our cruise points for anything on Carnival or Princess (a few others too but not our style ship).
We are very active, love action adventure, and I like it hot!
We are not big shoppers but don't mind a little RnR mixed in with the adventure.
Western Caribbean, guys. Cozumel, Cost Maya, Belize, Guatemala. Lots of great action tours, dry or wet!!! Happy honeymoon. Here's an idea - you can get a Justice of the Peace in Belize and re-enact your weddings vows inside the sacred Maya caves at Caves Branch in Belize, where Cave Tubing is carried out. The ancient Maya used the caves for that and other ceremonies. Be a blast - candles, champagne and all..........you up to it???
Hello Tarson07....M husband and I got married in the Caribbean six-years ago on the beach in St. John. We started our cruise on a Sunday unwed and the following day, that Monday we got married on the most beautiful beach in St. John and we begun our honeymoon that day! I would recommend Southern Caribbean, and if you are looking for a wonderful ship that offers everything, that would be Royal Caribbean Adventure of the Seas. I've been on Carnival in the past and it doesn't compare to RCCL. This October we are celebrating our 6th Anniversary on the Princess Crown....and going back to the Southern Caribbean. We've traveled Eastern, Western and Southern Caribbean....and hands down Southern Caaribbean wins!!! If you have any other questions I would be happy to help ya! Good luck on your upcoming marriage, and honeymoon
The Liberty goes transatlantic now. Its 14 days I think and goes to ports in the Mediteranean. Last year when we were in port at St. Thomas we met a couple who was on that exact cruise, so I think there's stops in the Carribean and the Mediterranean. The only negative thing is I think there's like 7 days at sea...and I'm sure airfare from Europe is expensive.
Otherwise if you're looking for something more conventional I'd recommend stops in St. Thomas and Grand Caymen. Also, Carnival's private island, Half Moon Cay was probably my favorite of them all. Its desolate, no commercialization, quiet and small. The water is clear and it's easy to explore on your own.
I'm sure that no matter what you choose will be a blast!
Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! And for choosing a cruise for your honeymoon! If you have a few extra vacation days check out the 10 and 11 night cruises from Florida that visit Panama and Costa Rica-you'll have more port days than sea days, and have opportunities for rain forest zip line canopy tours, snorkeling, ATV tours, etc. A southern caribbean cruise will keep you busy with just about a port of call every day. I vote Carnival or Royal Caribbean for energetic cruisers.
I have been on 7 cruises: 5 Carnival, one RCCL and one Holland America. I'm going on Carnival again this August. It's the most "fun" and laid back. My husband and I did HA a couple years ago because it was cheap last minute but it was a little stuffy... I've heard similar things from people that have done Princess.
Ports of Call that I love for being "active": Ocho Rios, Jamaica, Cozumel, and Belize (CAVE TUBING!!! LOVED IT... went twice!)
Congratulations and good luck! Oh, get a balcony cabin! They are the best!
